If you want the special colors, buy here. If you want to receive VE Monks anytime soon, order on Aliexpress or veclan. I know Massdrop takes a long time to ship stuff, but my headphones took 2 months and 7 days to arrive, which is much longer than usual.
As far as the headphones themselves go, it is a gamble whether you will find them comfortable or not. I think they are bearable, but can easily see them causing discomfort for some people. There is no isolation at all; this is a plus for me, as I want to hear things around me in certain situations, and in those situations these will be chosen over my iems.
Sound is ok. You can read all about it all over the internet. Most of the things you will read about it are true, except one: these are NOT better than literally anything else above 10-15 dollars. These have a unique form factor and sound compared to a lot of other 'audiophile' branded offerings in this low price point, but are not magical. Don't buy into the hype, you will be disappointed.
Regardless, monks are a must have for any audio enthusiast; I mean, they are $5!
